It's been at least 7 days. I'm going nuts. I never had this much trouble before!
My CYA is 40, maybe a little less. My FC has been above shock level (16) for at least a week. Just measured:
I've been running the filter non-stop (except for back-flushing) for over a week, and still I've got cloudy blue water. What am I doing wrong?
Yesterday I upgraded my pool vac. I have the standard Intex suction port. I cut off the mesh grating, and a Leslie 1.5" pool vac hose fits in nicely now. There's not much if anything on the pool bottom - which I can sort of see now - and I just bought another three huge bottles of bleach.
So, what's the record for days of shock required to clear a pool?
Any suggestions helpful. I've come close to just draining the $&(#@&*!*&$**!! thing and starting over; I've spent as much in bleach...
